Kit Dean and the Museum Archive
10th May – 3rd June 2023
Opening night Friday 12th May 5-7pm
The Art Centre Helensville is temporarily based at Helensville Museum Te Awaroa. As a result we have been privileged to view art in a different context. Utilizing the Museum’s symbology and reflecting on preserved subject matter, has challenged the idea of how we approach and curate shows, significantly photography.
Local photographer Kit Dean’s practice is environmentally based with a focus on structure and space. Visual aspects of Dean’s work are consonant with the static nature of the Museum photographic archives. These two projects will present ‘resistance’ thematically through the art of preservation and contemporary inclusion.
